Graduation & Commencement Information

Congratulations! You made it!

Congratulations as you prepare for graduation. Your hard work, determination, and perseverance are evident as you stand on the threshold of this major accomplishment.

How to Apply for Graduation

A formal graduation exercise is held annually at the end of the spring semester at Navarro College. This exercise is for those students who are completing requirements during the spring semester, who have completed requirements during the preceding summer or fall semesters, who are completing the final six (6) semester credit hours or less required for graduation during the following summer term. To participate in the graduation exercise, the student must submit an application for graduation to the Registrar’s Office no later than the date published in the calendar.

 

Students may graduate under the catalog and programs in effect at the time of their initial enrollment as long as they have had continuous enrollment. Missing one long semester (fall or spring) constitutes a break in enrollment and students will be required to adhere to the catalog and programs in effect at the time of their re-enrollment. Students also have the choice of graduating under the catalog and programs in effect at the time of graduation. Students must choose one or the other and may not combine rules or programs from two or more catalogs.

Application Deadline

Deadline to apply for Spring 2018 Commencement is Thursday, March 22.

Receiving Your Diploma 

Diplomas will be mailed to the address listed on your application for graduation approximately 3 – 6 weeks following the graduation ceremony. If you are completing hours for your degree during the summer sessions, your diploma will be mailed approximately 3 weeks after all summer grades have been officially posted.

The commencement ceremonies will be held Friday, May 11, 2018, at The Wolens Special Events Center (SEC) located on the Corsicana Campus, 3200 W 7th Ave, Corsicana, Texas and Saturday, May 12, 2018 in Ellis County at the Midlothian High School Indoor Arena, 923 S. 9th St. in Midlothian, Texas.
